Zinio is here!
What is Zinio you ask? weeelll…
Zinio is a magazine database that the library now has. It’s not just any old magazine database though. It has full story and image magazines (much like Press Display is for newspapers). And there are popular magazines you’ll want to read too – fashion mags included are Australian Vogue, US Elle, Grazia (South African, so a bit different), Nylon, Harpers Bazaar, Peppermint, Yen, Esquire, I could go on.
The best thing about Zinio is that it’s free to take out the magazines (or rather download them to your account and then read on your computer, smartphone, tablet, ipod – there’s an app) and you can keep them forever. YES, FOREVER.
All you need to start is your library card. Then you can find Zinio on our website, on our Mygateway page (under Magazines). From there you create an account on the library Zinio page. After that you need to create a Zinio account (you can you the use the same details for both accounts; you must use the same email address for both accounts). Finally, you’ll need to download the Zinio app if you’re using a tablet, ipad or smartphone. ( If you need any help take a look here for setting up and starting the app).
And away you go!
